The play was well done and the theater is gorgeous. Beware of getting seated under cold air vents however or bring wraps to protect yourself!
There are plenty of places to eat before the Operetta and parking was not a problem either. It is a long...continued

I really enjoyed this show. The costumes were very creative and the singing was great. I had never seen this operetta before, so it was cute. It was a little on the long side, but overall I enjoyed it.

Quotes & Highlights

Learn more about The Mikado from the in-depth information at the Gilbert & Sullivan Archive online.


Gilbert and Sullivan are the undisputed masters of comic operetta and the proud parents of the modern musical. That their works are more in demand today than when they were created over a century ago is ample proof of their lasting brilliance. The hapless lovers in The Mikado are mercilessly buffeted by social restrictions, legal inconsistencies, judicial inequities, government stupidities, and that’s just the first act! Poor dears – it would be absolutely tragic if it weren’t so hysterically funny.

About the Ticket Supplier: Atlanta Lyric Theatre

Atlanta Lyric Theatre, Atlanta’s only local professional musical theater company, was formed in 1980 by Tedi and Robert Langdon and Sally Knap as the Southeastern Savoyards, a repertory theatre company dedicated to presenting the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. The company’s first production, Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado, was performed at Emory University in December 1980. Later, the company’s productions were moved to the Marist School, the 14th Street Playhouse, Center Stage Theater, and then to the Robert Ferst Center for the Arts on the campus of Georgia Tech where the company’s main stage performances were produced for seventeen seasons.
